    DNS Park MX records

    Introduction

    To update your MX records with this Domain Name System (DNS) provider, first understand MX records and learn how to configure them for G Suite in general.

    Steps

    1. Log in to your account at https://www.dnspark.net.
    2. From the top, click DNS and select Show all.
    3. Click the domain you'd like to use with G Suite.
    4. Since DNS Park is your hosting service, and not your domain registrar, be sure that your domain points to DNS Park's nameservers. This will allow your MX record configuration to take effect.
    5. Delete any existing MX records.

      To direct your email to your G Suite account, you have to add new MX records to your domain. These are the records that you'll need to add:

      MX Server Address Priority
      ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 1
      ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5
      ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5
      ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 10
      ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 10
      Note: The values are the G Suite mail servers, and we include five servers in case one fails or requires maintenance.
    6. Under Add Records, select MX from the Type drop-down list.
    7. Enter @ in the Mail Domain field.
    8. Enter 3600 in the TTL field.
    9. Enter 1 in the Order field.
    10. Enter ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM in the Mail Server field.
    11. Click Update.
    12. Repeat Steps 5 - 10, entering the remaining values (MX Server Address) from the table above, and setting the Priority values respectively in the Order field.
    13. If you need to verify your domain, repeat the steps above to add the unique MX verification record provided by the G Suite setup wizard. Copy the entire record (ends in mx-verification.google.com)and paste it into the Value/Answer/Destination/Target column. Make sure this record's priority is set to Low or with a number of 15 or greater.

      Skip this step if you've already verified by another method (like TXT record, HTML file, or meta tag). This MX record verifies your domain.

    Be aware it may take as long as 72 hours before DNS changes are propagated, depending on the time to live (TTL) that was configured for your records. Until records have been updated worldwide, you will still receive traffic to your old server.
